Freight Shipping in Hyde Park, NY
Shipping Place & More: We handle freight
Shipping small packages is relatively simple, but where can you go to ship something large or heavy? Something beyond the weight limits of UPS, FedEx, U.S. Postal Service, and DHL? Visit Shipping Place & More in Hyde Park, New York, and discover the answer. Our customers are continuously surprised at the scope of services at Shipping Place & More, because we are certainly more than the average packing and shipping store.
The freight business
Transporting large and heavy items can be a big challenge if you don’t know how to access the freight and air cargo shipping market and transportation options. Typically any shipment over 150 pounds is considered freight. Goods, commodities, and cargo of that size can be transported by ship, aircraft, truck, train, and any combination of those modes, such as intermodal shipments via both railroad and road.
Domestic and international freight shipments
Moving freight makes the business world go 'round and 'round. Fleets of trucks crisscross the country with goods and products that keep our citizens fed, clothed, sheltered, and cared for. Internationally, the movement of freight via air cargo and sea container is critical for the global supply chain, from small business to huge corporation.
Navigating the transportation field
The rules, regulations, requirements and costs for freight shipping are far different than for small packages. It’s imperative to find a freight professional who knows how to navigate the freight environment to secure reliable, efficient and safe transportation for a good price. For instance, unless you have a manufacturing company or other business that routinely transports large amounts of products or goods, you will likely be looking at LTL (less than a truckload) carriers for your shipments. We are experts in locating LTL carriers to work with us on your shipping needs.

For items over 150 pounds, freight shipping is not inexpensive. However, our experienced staff will work for you to find the best prices for each job. Many shipment details go into a freight quote, which can depend on the weight, transit times, freight class, accessorial charges, and route. The carriers' bill of lading will spell out the shipping cost. Shippers may have pricing surcharges for compensation paid for hauling hazardous materials. You will pay considerably more money for express charges.
